Welcome to My First 40 Finds in the 1940 US Census! This blog series is a tribute to the first 40 entries that I located without the use of an index.
The 1940 US Federal Census was released online to the public on April 2, 2012. Within the first three days, I had already found 40 families from my various tree branches. I spent six months prior to the release researching the exact addresses and locations for these families so I could find them quickly upon the census release.
This 1940 US Federal Census entry features the family of Robert “Bob” Henry Green, the paternal grand uncle of my husband. He is the older brother of Max Earl Green, my husband’s grandfather. Robert Green (23) is featured here with his wife Dorothy (22) and their son, Larry Green (5). Robert and his wife Dorothy both graduated from high school. This census entry shows that in 1935 they lived on a rural plot of land outside Van Buren County in Michigan.
